The Match Options Business Model
Established in 1999 Match Options specialise in sourcing suitably qualified staff for both the Social and Healthcare industries.
As a Match Options franchisee you can operate in both regulated and non-regulated sectors. You can focus on starting as specialist recruitment agency supplying temporary and permanent staff such as nurses and healthcare assistants to regulated organisations including Hospitals and Care Homes.
You can also operate a domiciliary care business (providing care in the home) which is regulated by the Care Quality Commission. You will be required to register as a domiciliary care provider with the CQC before you can provide domiciliary care, and Match Options will work with you on your registration.
The main areas that we operate within are:
- The recruitment of Nurses and Carers for placements within care and nursing homes
- The recruitment of carers who visit the elderly, disabled or indeed any other cross section of individuals who may require care at home.
This means as a Match Options Franchisee you have two potential income streams namely; filling temporary or permanent positions across a broad range of establishments.
